How to Delete or Snooze Your Bumble Account to Detox Yourself in 2022

This ‘how to delete bumble account‘ comes into question either when you found your ‘one‘ or the other way around. Personally, for me, it’s the other way around almost all the time. Well, you will be able to read more self-deprecating introductions on more articles if you keep reading us on but this one is not about me. It’s about how to deactivate and delete a bumble account. Deleting Dating apps might help you with self-discovery or even Digital detox.

In the case of bumble, we have two options to delete the bumble account, one is permanent and the other being the temporary one. You can either delete your bumble account permanently or make sure your profile doesn’t get discovered by using the Snooze feature within Bumble. Let’s see how you can do both of these.

Permanently Delete Your Bumble Account :

Before we go further, here is a sweet disclaimer for you:

Deleting Bumble will Remove all your data, your pictures, and your bio which you probably stole from some Shakespearean textbook and you will never be able to recover anything ever again. So make sure that you take screenshots or back up all the text by copying them to a doc file. Just in case, you need them later to print those conversations on a blanket and giving it to your significant other on some anniversary as a token of your love. Weird much or being cute; but who we are to judge. *wink*

Let’s bid adieu to our sweet bumble account now:

1. Open the Bumble app (obviously) and as soon as you open the app you will see photos of the girls or guys waiting to be right-swiped and never swipe back. Ignore them, they are just here to distract you and we no longer need that kind of distraction in our life.

2. Now tap on the user icon on the bottom left side of the screen. As soon as you do that you will be taken to your page with your photo. I have blurred mine because of privacy, kindly don’t follow me on Instagram.

5. Type delete and hit confirm. Once you do this, your bumble account will be deleted successfully and now you won’t be able to use bumble ever. You will have to make an account again to use bumble once again after breaking up, but we hope you never have to.

If you want a temporary solution to quit bumble for a while then consider snoozing your account.

How to Snooze your Bumble Account

Introduced first in 2018, the snooze feature lets you take a break from your usual swiping shenanigans resulting in compulsive swiping behavior which is not cool for a healthy life. If you wish to digitally detox then this might be a good option for you to consider.

To snooze your Bumble profile we have to do a similar drill like we did while deactivating the bumble account.

1. On your home screen tap on the bottom left icon to reveal the user page.
